Hi

i am ordering my query by seq and seq is integer ..
my problem is that the order starts with null values how i can avoid null values to be in the first
the order must start with values asc and the null values will be all in the last as they have no values

Hi asaidi,

Couple of ways you can do this.



//Method 1
SELECT seq FROM ordersTable ORDER BY ISNULL(seq), seq ASC;

//Method 2
SELECT seq FROM ordersTable ORDER BY -seq DESC;
